OK, I dug around some old back up disks and here's what I could come up with.
This guy is a vintage repro GI Joe in the tiger stripes from the older 21C carded sets. For some reason, he wasn't wearing his webgear or carrying his rifle but he did have them back when I did this bash. I had to use a later style beret because the one that came in the early 21C sets was too big for his head. I've always thought the vintage Joe Green Beret was cool but the early 21C gear could give you a vintage feel with better accuracy and at a fraction of the cost.
I had just back-dated this guy from 21C BDUs to Dragon boots and jungle fatigues before this photo was taken. Web gear, rifle and patrol cap are still 21C, goggles are early BBI. Figure is a GI Joe Classic Collection super articulated type. He was originally equipped with gear from the carded Modern Ranger set before the uniform was changed out.
Both of these photos date from around July 2005.
